Benefits of SMSF
SMSFs provide a range of investment options. Trustees can potentially access direct shares, high-yielding cash accounts, term deposits, income investments, direct property, unlisted assets, international markets, collectables and more.
Like all super funds, SMSFs benefit from concessional tax rates. In the accumulation phase, tax on investment income is capped at 15 per cent; in the pension phase there is no tax payable, not even capital gains tax. Carefully considered tax strategies can help you grow your super savings and reduce tax payments as you transition to retirement.
SMSFs allow multiple members to run a mixture of accumulation and pension accounts. You’ll be able to adjust your investment mix as it suits you, allowing for a fast response to changes in market conditions, super rules or personal circumstances.
SMSFs offer significant transparencies that allow trustees to align their personal goals with their investment decisions. Whether you’re passionate about property, shares or sustainable and ethical investing, SMSFs provide a platform which allows you to understand where your money is invested, with complete visibility over performance and tax treatment.
Things you need to know
Investing on your own can be risky.
All investments come with some level of risk. However, the more investment experience you have, the better you’ll be at managing this risk. You need to be confident in your ability to create and manage your SMSF investment strategy. If you’re not, you might be better off sticking with a regular super fund that manages these investments on your behalf.
SMSF regulation is constantly changing.
You might understand all the regulations and policies concerning SMSFs now, but these laws are constantly being tweaked. Something that was okay the previous year might not be okay the next; you need to stay up-to-date with the regulation each year to avoid being fined. Because these regulations are constantly evolving, it can be easy to get caught out.
An SMSF could end up costing you more.
An SMSF could end up being a lot more expensive to manage compared to the fees you’d pay in a standard super fund. There are set-up fees, annual reporting and auditing fees as well as ongoing admin and investment management fees to think about. Plus, if you decide to pay for professional investment advice and planning, you’ll be paying even more.
